Peanut Chicken & Noodle Bowls


Peanut Chicken & Noodle Bowls

This recipe floated around in my head for months before I finally threw it together and I had so many ideas I was nervous that it wasn’t going to turn out. ⁣

SUCCESS! 🙌 It’s delicious and a definite change up from my other meal prep recipes I’ve been posting lately. I was over chicken for a while but this is DELICIOUS and I can’t wait for you to try it! 🤤 Make sure you save it for next time you need a new meal prep recipe and tag me in your pictures if you give it a try! I always love to hear when people are making my recipes and what they think-it makes me want to stay creative in the kitchen because I can eat the same thing most days and not get bored. 😉⁣

INGREDIENTS:⁣

🔹 7.5 oz rice noodles (you could sub a shiritaki noodle here if you want to lower the carbs) ⁣

🔹 16 oz thinly sliced/shredded purple cabbage⁣

🔹 1-12oz bag broccoli slaw⁣

🔹 3-4 sliced green onions⁣

🔹 1T toasted sesame oil⁣

🔹 1T squeeze ginger⁣

🔹 2 cloves minced garlic⁣

🔹 Salt⁣

🔹 1lb grilled chicken, diced (I used chicken skewers from @costco to make prep even faster) ⁣

🔹 1 batch of my lightened up peanut dressing (see previous post for recipe!)⁣

🔹 Lime wedges (optional)⁣

🔹 Cilantro (optional)⁣

DIRECTIONS:⁣

✅ Cook rice noodles in boiling salted water for 4-5 minutes. Strain and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. ⁣

✅ Add toasted sesame oil to a large skillet on medium high heat. ⁣

✅ Add broccoli slaw, cabbage, garlic, and ginger to the skillet. Sprinkle with salt. Cook until tender crisp about 3 minutes or so using tongs to evenly cook/stir. ⁣

✅ Drain rice noodles and place approx 3oz noodles in each of 5 meal prep containers. ⁣

✅ Evenly distribute the cooked slaw mix to each meal prep container⁣

✅ Add 3.2oz cooked grilled chicken to each container. ⁣

✅ Pour approx. 45g/3T of my lightened peanut sauce to the top of each container. ⁣

✅ Sprinkle with cilantro and/or additional green onions. ⁣

Shake to combine if you want.⁣

✅ Add a lime wedge to each container for serving.⁣

This meal can be enjoyed cold or hot! Now that the weather’s warmer I’ve been enjoying it cold-it’s great either way.🤩⁣
